Bell Let’s Talk
This year, Bell announced that it will donate an additional $10 million towards its goal of $155 million for Canadian mental health programs. This action will replace the donation of 5 cents per interaction that Bell has made in previous years on Bell Let’s Talk Day.
On January 25 and every day throughout the year, we can all take meaningful action to create positive change. Let’s change this asks everyone to play a role and provides practical examples of ways to create change in our homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. Here are some actions we can all take:
- Choose a mental health organization to learn about or support
- Help a friend struggling with their mental health by learning how to support them
- Ask about how your school, workplace or community is creating change for mental health
- Nurture your own well-being by practicing and learning mental health strategies
- Get involved in a mental health initiative or organize an event to support mental health
- Engage in conversations about mental health to fight stigma

In 2018, Bell Let’s Talk and The Rossy Family Foundation (The RFF) donated $1 million to create a national standard for post-secondary student mental health to support student success on campuses across Canada. The RFF and Bell Let’s Talk engaged us to lead the project to establish the standard in collaboration with Canada’s standards-setting organizations. We delivered the National Standard for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students in October 2020. Join the conversation by using the hashtag #StudentSuccess.
In 2013, we launched the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. Development of the voluntary standard was supported by funding from Bell, the Government of Canada, and the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace. Join us in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Standard by using the hashtag #StandardCda.
